A large group of us (approximately 75 in number) spent two nights at this hotel recently. We arrived quite late at night but our plastic keys were all ready for us in named envelopes, thus saving a great deal of hassle in the foyer. One or two small issues did arise over room allocations i.e. not every room was deemed...

Arrived 8pm without a booking. GM Colin couldn't have been more helpful quickly finding me a room before allowing the delightful Anita (?) to do the check in. Room was to a high standard, lobby areas very spacious and comfortable with attentive and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

We were given a midweek break by our family at this hotel. We found the rooms to a very high 4 star standard but the bathroom was old and outdated. There was mould between the bath and the shower screen corner. The breakfast. "Everyone loves a great Irish breakfast" This hotel`s breakfast is the worse we have tasted in 20...

We had a lovely weekend break at the Ormonde Hotel last weekend. We stayed 2 nights, one of which was quite hectic and the other total relaxation. The hotel is in the ideal location for shops, bars and restaurants. Kilkenny in a buzzing place and people lined the streets in the evening to party. The hotel itself was very nice,...

The front desk was pleasant and helpful. The family room was extremely spacious. The showers were hot with good pressure. Breakfast was very good the next morning. As a Canadian tourist I had absolutely no clue about the Irish swimming cap policy. Anyone who swims need to wear a swimming cap. I felt this should have been told to us...

On this trip, we chose most of our hotels based on location - and this one is in a fantastic location for access to the local sights. With that said, there wasn't much else about this hotel that garnered our notice. The staff was reasonably polite, breakfast was meh, and the bed was just OK. We'd probably choose a different...
